MLP HATE RANT - opinions please

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 22, 2012, 5:36 PM

Okay look, this is just really bothering me right now but MLP hate is possibly going too far. I see amazing artists getting put down because they've made or drawn pony related things and the viewers seem to overlook the actual work and just jump on the hate wagon.

The artist I'm mentioning in particular is :iconmagnastorm:, She makes absolutely wonderful plushies and I just feel so bad for her right now. :C

You may have seen this recently on the front page or in your inbox:
Chibi Toothless by MagnaStorm

This cute piece made over 7000 favorites and comments were screaming love.

BUT as soon as she made a Pony related piece:
Pony Kyogre by MagnaStorm

She got flooded with hate mail and people accusing her of butchering other fandoms.

Now not saying there isn't any good comments on her Pony Kyogre but people seem to overlook the fact that an artist has spent time working on something that most of us couldn't. I'm not really interested in pony fandom or the show or anything really but I'm not going to hate good art just because its MLP related. Am I the only person that thinks that way?? :C

For me it depends. Some of those comments were okay, I mean, it's okay to voice your opinion. You shouldn't be rude about it, but I think it's okay to say that you don't like ponies or whatever. As long as you aren't insulting the artist.
In fact, I thought it was sort of funny because on some of the PERFECTLY FINE comments people posted, they got much more vicious responses. Like, one person says, "I don't like ponies very much." and someone else says, "Nobody cares, you little prick. If you don't like, don't look, you don't have to go around posting comments on (etc)."

Some just gave the opinion. I don't like this character because the mix between pokemon/mlp is not terrible. But she spent time on it this plush. and the it looks so sweet and it's really detailed. It's a really good job ! and this is a commission... so people over reacted for nothing. But I saw some people who tried to defend the artist saying stupid things ... Attacking for a simple " I don't like the mix between mlp/pokemon but good job " . Their's a problem. Don't feed the troll. >_<
I'm not a big fan of mlp but I like atworks of them.

I'd just ignore their a minority of people who have no mannors or respect for other artists talantsss.

I was a huge MLP fan, when I was a kid I don't really like what DA has turned them into today but hey its a whole generation since I was a fan things change.

It's ok to be annoyed and even hate something like that but it's not ok to post hate comments and stuff. I can't stand homestuck artwork because it's everywhere and it's annoying to see, but I don't make it my personal vendetta to ruin those artist's day. lol Whoever lets themselves get angry enough to post hate message is pathetic. Seriously.

Agreed. It's all really immature.

people just tend to have a blind rage when they see something that pisses them off completely
but damn its really childish and ignorant to be slamming someone's art and such like that

but id have to agree with holyfrap too, because it was just basically a wrong move, and she shouldve thought of the setbacks before posting this
i mean
theres already so much hate on MLP fandom cross overs
like slenderpony and so on
and i guess its just getting pretty old and annoying no matter how good the art is really
but yeah, thats really my opinion on the whole thing

but then again, shouldn't people be allowed to post what they want?
The artist should be able to freely post their art regardless of what other people think. It's unfair to say that they shouldn't post something just because it's not what people want.
sure the whole crossover thing gets a lot of hate but still, it isn't fair in my opinion ;u;
Densetsugin Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah thats definitely true xD
geez this case is just so touchy, like i dont really know what to say to it really
really the bottom line is that the people that commented so rudely really shouldve thought before they acted
no one deserves that type of shit from anybody
like really, its no big deal
just a stuffy someone requested, get over it xD
so yeah youre right, it isnt fair

XD sorry if I made things a little touchy. It is a bit of a touchy subject after
what's done is done I guess~
And I understand you completely hehe

The only thing was though, it was a commission and she was just making what the customer wanted
